Wow, great find. Thanks for posting. If I lived anywhere near there I'd be sniffing around that stuff for darn sure.

There's a guy who buys up all the used sheet metal equipment he can find anywhere near here (Los Angeles) and re-sells it at higher "market rate". It was only a few years ago you could buy a decent old used 4 foot Roper or Pexto finger brake for $500 or less, clean it up, and have a really nice tool. This rotten !(#*$ has driven the prices up to double or triple that.

Old aircraft building friend and I built a very good 8' brake from plans. Cost low, but a lot of work. Bent all the wing spar webs for 4 Bearhawks in this brake amount all the other work.
